Let's face it people, there is a LOT of letter writing that can be done these days... so we are extra happy to welcome back to the bar Mike and PUBLETTERS, your chance to put pen to paper and make your voice heard. Write your mom, your lover, your second grade teacher, or maybe...just maybe this guy.

Write your letter, drink some Yards on draft and sit back while someone else hands you an envelope, stamp and even walks it to the post box for you.

No cost, no reservation, just show up and get to writing (and drinking).

Every THIRD Wednesday of the Month 5pm

Beer School has long been an opportunity to learn a little something about the beer we love to serve at Local 44. Free samples of each beer we will discuss are offered as our treat to you during the class.

There is a donation required to attend Beer School. 
You can "pay what you wish", but you have to pay something. 

100% of your Beer School donation goes directly to No Kid Hungry, an organization that aims to end childhood hunger in our community and across the country.
